The books in this series are written primarily for two types of clientele: those engaged in educational planning and administration, in developing as well as developed countries; and those, such as senior government officials and policy-makers, seeking a more general understanding of educational planning and how it relates to national development. They are intended to be of use either for private study or in formal training programmes.
Planning for Education in the Context of HIV/AIDS
This book examines briefly the nature and features of HIV/AIDS and the impact of the epidemic on development. Within this context, it examines the interaction between the epidemic and education from two perspectives: the use of education in preventing HIV transmission, and the impact of the disease on education systems. It deals more extensively with the latter aspect, analyzing how HIV/AIDS affects education in terms of demand, clientele (with special reference to orphans), supply, and such quality-related aspects as content, organization and funding. A recurrent theme is that the extensive two-way interaction between HIV/AIDS and educational provision necessitates a radical re-examination of many of the premises underlying education as currently delivered. Education in an AIDS-infected world cannot be the same as education in an AIDS-free world.
